letter to Kit…

Hey Kit,
seems like years now since we’ve talked…’fraid to pick up the phone…scared of what you might say to me…always worried ’bout things like that…wondered what you were thinking on the other end…sittin’ there in that big leather chair of your’s…all comfortable…head laid back with your feet propped-up on the footstool…did you get it reupholstered…so many cracks in it when i knew ya’…used to cover up the rips with silver Duck tape…like a worn out pair of cowboy boots…holes in the soles…
thanks for the Christmas card…opened it as soon as i saw the address on the envelope…thought it was from you…wasn’t sure though…forgot your address for a brief second…then it hit me…yep…that’s from her…i said to myself as i walked up the stairs to my room…yea…still renting a room above the liquor store on Broadway…go down there a few times a week for a bottle of hooch…something to calm the nerves…gotta bad case of the worries these days…worried ’bout small things…like the government…rent…where my next meal’s comin’ from…things i should have control over…but i don’t…
yes…you guessed it…still wantin’ to hit the road…wantin’ to go back and see things i’ve seen before…see ’em again and again and again…just like some kid on their birthday…same old gift in a different package…we say we like the element of surprise…but do we really…
your card is funny…a snowman with sticks for arms…big gloves hangin’ on ’em…you know what happens to snowmen…they melt…
Take care of yourself,
Eddie

The writing is based on my surroundings and what I've been surrounded by. This language is coarse and politically incorrect; which I make no apologies for. These characters are not nice and to use any other dialogue would be disingenuine. That being said, I choose to roll the dice. dm seay
